Rome: Marsala Termini Area - Is it ok? How far from Rome to...

Looking for a Rome hotel for 6 nights - noticed the area by the train terminals - have seen post's that say it's a bad area. Any ideas?

Also. Anyone know about taking a train to the southern tip of Italy - say Tropea? How long a ride is that?

Thanks all.

Hi,

Just arrived back from Italy. We stayed close to the Termini area (Hotel Gabriella - about 5 minutes walking) and we never felt unsafe. We found the area very convenient, train station, metro and the buses. However, we never stayed out past 11:00 p.m.

The Termini area is not very attractive but safety will not be an issue. If you can afford to stay closer to the sights, do it.

The train ride from Rome to Tropea is 6-7 hours depending on the type of train you take.
